Nice alternative is to use TR7 calipers. They bolt right on, and can be bought completely new for like $70 each. You will have a nice side effect of more pad choices, cheaper rebuild costs, and slightly larger pad area. TR7 pads are cheap, readily available, and can be had in race compounds if you desire. And no, the slightly larger pad area does not increase pedal effort.

And on yours, if I can't push them back with my fingers, granted with a lot of effort, I rebuild them. I still agree with the above posting about using a block and c-clamp since many times you can't get a straight shot with your hands, but a nice working caliper with bleed screw open should be doable with your hands/fingers.
