having trouble getting front brake caliper piston back into place. Have loosed the bleeder valve screw.

Have applied prying force with screwdriver and pressure force with c-clamp type. Doesn't seem to be moving at all.

Using a large C-clamp, bottom the piston in the caliper bore by positioning the C-clamp on the outboard pad and on the round portion of the brake caliper where the piston is housed.

sounds like you need a new brake caliper to me unless its a screw type piston but I've only ran into those on the rear of a car once

did you loosen the top of the master cylinder to allow the fluid to run back into the reservoir?
