Power Steering Pump Resevoir DSDP4095

Where is the power steering fluid reservoir for for the 2002 Dutch Star DSDP4095 Spartan Chassis. Been looking for some info in the search, but unable to fine any information. Have my chassis diagram in my manual but can't make out the numbers on the drawing. If anyone has a pdf on this chassis it would be much appreciated.

It's a large tank (holds about 5 gallons) mounted on the right as you look into the rear engine hood. It's about 1 foot in diameter and 2 feet tall. It is a combination tank for the engine cooling fan and the power steering. It may or may not have a clear site glass on it to see the fluid level.

Thanks for the pictures and description of the tank. Checked the level with the dip stick and is below the add mark. What type of fluid is required and is it available in an auto motive store and do I service through the dipstick hole at the top?

AW32 hydraulic oil. Yes fill it through the top dip stick opening. Maybe auto parts store may have it. If not Tractor Supply type stores have it.

It's in the front. Open the front hood and look to the left of generator. It's a black tank with a vent/dip stick in the top of the tank. Jack's must be fully retracted when checking the oil. I'm pretty sure it uses automatic transmission fluid, not the hydraulic fluid used in the steering. When you pull the dip stick you should be able to tell if it's auto. trans. fluid on the stick.
