Mate, you need as big a punch as poss' (just to break the nose of the taper free) and a good heavy hammer (not a mallet LOL, that will be absorbing all the force)

Make sure it's the far end of the pin you soak well (the end where you would knock the new pin in) - this is where the retaining collar is seated and this is where they seize

A good swing should start the pins out - you gotta give em a fair whack to get em going....

As Hair Bear says you need to give them some welly just to get them started just make sure you punch doesnt slip else you will end up marking the calliper...
