only pushed them out say half to three quarters of inch just to check they
weren't seized, and yes with the rotor out.

When you pushed your pistons back out by stepping on the brakes this was
with the rotor out?  That means the piston extended well beyond normal
travel?  That also means the piston in the MC went beyond its normal travel
into the areas of its cylinder normally not touched by the seals on the
piston.  Could be lots of corrosion in those sections of the MC cylinder to
tear up the seals.
