You can use the old brake pad and a c clamp
Push the two cylinders together

Caliper off make sure hose not kinked place an old pad in front the caliper pistons
Using a C clamp
Turn the c clamp handle pushing in the pistons
Or u can push in one side and hold it in using a Vise Grip Pliers
and push in the other one
