    Default Ford 550 power steering fluid

    Ok so a bit of background. I just recently bought a 5 acre property and it came with a Ford 550 FEL/BH. I am not sure what year it is, I think it's a early to mid 80's model. The former owner told me it had a leaky seal in one of the front axles which leaks power steering fluid. His recommendation was to put in some power steering fluid on the rare occasion that I use it, unless I was using it enough to warrant paying for the repair.
    Now for my question, and it will likely sound pretty foolish. Can anyone tell me where the cap for the power steering fluid is? I am totally new to tractors so any help is much appreciated. Any additional tips or pointers are also appreciated.
    Thanks!
