Are you sure you did not kink the brake lines (hoses) when you put the caliper back on?

Well, with the age of the hoses, it may be possible they are bad and you bending them like that made them clog up. It may be worth just replacing them anyhow. I do not think they are that expensive. Sometimes they will go bad on the inside and you can not tell it from looking at them.
