power steering merc 1.7l

Hi,
found my steering to be really heavy and found that I am meant to have power steering... traced the hoses back to the front of the engine where the pump is on a pully but I cannot see a reservoir??

Is the reservoir not part of the pump. Normally is on larger mercruisers.

Isn't that the old style reservoir, thought it had been superceded by a round, very car type looking one!
