The pistons finally moved...

I kept on pumping the brake pedal with a hose coming from the bleed valve to a jar of brake fluid. Finally i felt the driver side piston "burst" and the hose started passing fluid and bubbles. Te same trck then worked on the passenger side.

When I rebuil the brake calipers I used Soap to lubricate the seals when i shoved the pistons back in. Did they lock? Also I really retracted the psitons to accomodate new pads and rotors; I used a C-clamp and really shoved them down. I guess the combinaton of my "genius" in these two ideas is what locked them up.
