how do you adjust a super record RD?

it appears to have only one screw, as opposed to the normal high and low limiters with which I am familiar. a google search returns results for modern Super Record...

ah, I was looking down at it and expecting both screws to be side by side. so in your picture, am I correct in thinking the right screw is the high (outer) limit screw, and tightening this will reduce the travel of the derailleur?

The right screw is for high gear or small diameter cogs....

Anyone know offhand what the threading is on those? I'm missing one. I reckon the hardware store version will do the job just as well.
