I bought a pair Campy brakes, and this is my first time use their brakes, the front Dual Pivot caliper has a hole on the right side if you look it from the front, the left side has a adjustment screw, is there suppose to be another adjustment screw on the right side as well?
Am I missing something on this caliper?

I checked a couple of my bikes (SR and Chorus). The adjustment screw looks like it tightens the spring. Both the ones I looked at have nothing on the other side.

As mentioned the LH is to adjust the spring tension.
The RH side is for centering the caliper.

It looks like the grub / set screw is there, just recessed. It's not the same as the RH side.
Have a look at the inside of the caliper. You should be able to see it's threads.

BTW they are both 2mm hex Allen key.

Is that what it is? The screw is recessed in the hole?
Yes, now I can see the screw is all the way in there, what does the spring tension screw do?

Thanks guys.

And let me guess ... you've bought these brakes not realizing with Campagnolo that the QR system is built into the levers and not the calipers.
