I have used a small grease gun to remove stuck pistons.  I remove the 
Zerk coupler and screw the tube into the caliper's brake line hole.  Use 
a C clamp to hold the freed piston in place.

After removing the caliper I’ve applied air pressure to the inlet and I was only able to free up the outside piston . What can be done to free up the inboard piston ?
