Power steering fluid question

Ok, I searched online first with VERY mixed reviews...

Some say motor oil
Some say transmission fluid
Some say power steering fluid

My power steering is starting to whine, and I need to add liquid!
Which one?

Unit info is under my username in left column

Nevermind... Pulled dog house off and found 2 labels

I have 3 portals in dog house to access fluids, so I had previously just pulled the dip stick

For future knowledge....
International uses a 10 cent fiber washer as opposed to a rubber o-ring for their 45 fitting at the bottom of the steering gear box.




Note to self:
Pick up more kitty litter
