You need a wind back tool to push and turn at the same time. It can be done with bruteforce and turning at the same time but wind back tool is so much easier.

it is fairly easy {if you have the tools} you say you skrewed the pistion in? so im assuming you have a suitable pin tool? if i remember correctly that piston can be pushed/skrewed in so its prety much flush with the caliper, bearing in mind if your brake fluid level has been topped up,you may have to remove some fluid when the pistons get pushed back,how much doesnt it fit by? cant you just skrew the piston in more? if not are the disc's roughly the same thickness? allowing for wear on your old ones.
