Default Power steering leak

Hi
I am the proud new owner of a 1980 242 GT with a B21. My power steering reservoir is leaking to the rate that it is empty after one day. I honestly havenít dived in to figure out from where but before I did I wanted to post and see if anyone has had a similar issue and can suggest a plan of attack.
Thanks for any help.

Best thing to do is to take a look at the rack to see where it is leaking. If you live in the rust belt, more than likely the leak is due to rusted out hydraulic line that runs to the passenger side of the rack. Only solution is to fabricate a new line or replace the rack with a rebuilt.

Never know what it is until you get in there and look! May be just a loose clamp/fitting.
