    If you can rotate the piston and break whatever crud is glueing the piston in, it will make it much easier to push out either hydraulically or pneumatically. I've used the grease gun and air, and if you are using air you do need to use a bit of wood or something to 'arrest' the flying piston.

    Of course there is a specific tool to rotate the piston - Brake Piston Removal Locking Pliers. But you might be able to fashion something that achieves the same end.

    I'm glad you can get yours to work - I bought a Seeley one of these and it just twists when I try to tighten it and doesn't work. I like yours much bigger and beefier - can I ask where you got it?

    Not sure if this will work getting the pictures on, will soon see.
    Hopefully that will clear up about the part I am talking about. Have tried wd40 in there,doesn't do shit.

    Off the top of my head

    Drilling + Extractor at the piston, or

    small drilling > middle drilling > large drilling at the piston

    Similar to rotating, have you tried to dress it in a "little further"? Only a mm or two to break the seal that's holding it.

    Can do this with a G-clamp if you don't have a press. Then use air.

    If the piston is past the inlet port you'll need to use the Banyo connection end..

    If air flows between the two opening, fit a normal bolt as a plug with some plumbers thread tape to the outlet instead of the banyo

    All good now, thanks to everyone's advice. Finally managed to budge it back after soaking then used some air,then moved it back again and eventually tapping it on the end,it came out. Will clean it up and see what the bore is like.
    Thanks again.
