I believe you want to get the pistons in far enough to mount them on the rotor not caliper since the piston is part of the caliper. I have done several brake jobs on my Accord and always use a C-clamp to draw in the piston without any problems. I make sure that the C-clamp is centered in the piston. You might want to remove the brake fluid reservoir cap since the brake fluid level will rise as you draw in the piston.

Hope this helps.
