get a nice pair of snap on water pump pliers and a G clamp .place G clamp on piston and apply slight pressure then turn piston with the water pump pliers ,better getting er indoors to tighten clamp very slowly whilst you support the caliper and wind the piston in at the same time.

The piston must be rotated as it is pushed into the caliper. There is a special tool for this that is sold at just about all parts houses. The tool looks like a small square with various pins for various applications that goes on the end of your 3/8 drive ratchet.
