Power steering pump

I've got a small leak at the front of the power steering pump. I suspect this is the original pump to the car - not sure if it was rebuilt with new seals or not back when the car was restored. Right now it's not bad enough that I feel like I need to replace it or overhaul with new seals.

However, I would like to make sure I keep enough fluid in it. The dipstick says ATF Fluid "A" on it. The shop manual doesn't really specify what type of fluid. I picked up a quart of Type F fluid - will this work. I doubt there's anyway to know what's in it right now.
