Clutch Catastrophe, can't get slave cylinder back on

Am leaving on a trip Tuesday after work and though I'd put a new chain on this weekend, disaster strikes. I didn't tie wrap the clutch slave closed, and the cylinder has come out some so that I can't get the bolts started. I've tried using a C claimp to press it back in, but that's not working. Anyone out there in Stromtrooper land know the solution? Thanks!

Just in case anyone else is in the same situation

Finally got the thing apart tonight. disconnected the hydraulic hose, found an air fitting that would thread into that orifice, and eventually blew the piston out. It was seriously dirty, the boot thing that Suzuki provides is inadequate for off road use, I'm not sure whether the aftermarket makes one but I'll look after my trip. Undoubtedly my clutch is leaking horribly in the meantime.
