XL250 Fork/Brake

Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone could explain the XL250 fork and front brake difference. I'm not very familiar with them and am using the XL250 (suspected '76) on a build i'm doing. The problem i'm specifically having is the front drum (torque arm - or lack there of). i was under the impression the front drum "bottomed out" on that rectangular notch on the fork and that there wasn't a lug/gussett for a traditional "brake torque arm." i need a tube with a lug/gusset, and found one, but am suspicious if the lug is intended for the torque arm. can anyone help or point me in the direction of a brake-down on the designs?
