1986 early 300E PS Fluid level check

Hello, I have an early 300E. The power steering fluid reservoir has a plastic insert similar the 92 300TE I have (same motor) but it does not have the lines marked for the level. How do I make sure I have enough PS fluid? I can try to get a pic of it if that helps ...

1986 300E W124 M103 250k miles

Thanks!

Is there fluid almost up to the top? If so then you're good.

well no -- I need to add fluid that I know. Fluid is just above the filter. Yes I know I also am leaking somewhere ...

Then add fluid till it's mostly to the top, but has some room to expand as it heats up.
