76 300D (w115) PS pump location

I used to own a great w115 220D that had none of the bells or whistles. The 300D is a whole other beast and I am at a loss to locate the power steering pump. The fluid reserve is up top, but the hoses lead into a dark hole. I have a leak from someplace in the line but am not able to get at it. A pointer on location and how to access would be appreciated. My manuals are for the pre 1974 models, so exclude data on this car.

BTW -- this was purchased as a scrap car with much rust, mold, missing paperwork, and a clueless PO. Much of what I know is based on the early /8 and translates well enough

Thanks, i found it while looking for the oil filter. How in the world do I gain access to the pump? Looks like I would need to remove the radiator.
