Need help fixing campy brake

I'm a noob and just got my bike on Sunday. It's a 01 bianchi veloce and I wanted to take apart the front brake to get familiar with the parts and see how it works. I believe the brakes are campy veloce dual pivot brakes. I put most of it all back the same way it started except for one thick looking washer(I don't know what it's called). But the main problem I'm trying to fix is when I put all the bolts back, the spring behind the brake won't stay in place and is loose. I'll press the front brake lever and then the brake pads won't bounce back to its original place after I release the lever because of the spring. Here's some pictures of the washers thing and the spring.

Campy tend to spec single-pivot brakes rear brakes with dual-pivot front ones, the two may not be similar enough.

I don't use, or have a campy dual pivot caliper at hand, but your first photo has a part that looks out of rotational place. The washer with a tab that is between the arm and back yoke is likely 180* out of position. I suspect the tab is to contact the centering set screw. Andy.

They do with the Skeleton / higher end brakes, but the OP has Veloce brakes dating from 2001 (going on the age of bike given), looking at the tech docs, the only difference between the F&R brakes of this age, is the length of the fitting bolt on this model of brake (see page 35) https://www.campagnolo.com/repository...spares01-B.pdf
