I have an Ouzo Pro carbon fork that I'm trying to fit a new Campy Chorus brake to. The fork appears to be too "thick" for the allen head bolt and the brake caliper to fit together through. Has anyone else experienced this and what's the solution (get a longer allen head bolt?) ?

Get a longer recessed allen nut. That's a commonly available part so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding one.
Yup, you need a longer nut for that fork. Loose Screws sells 'em http://www.loosescrews.com/index.cgi?c=Brake&sc=Recessed%20Nuts&id=94773831934 but I would check your LBS since shipping a single nut isn't too efficient.
