Dumb Question: What kind of fluid to put into clutch master cylinder reservoir?

Hey y'all!

So I've got some great news! After cleaning and remounting my fuel tank and hooking up a new battery, I tried to fire up the 72 240z. Sure enough, it cranked, turned over, and ran with just a few turns of the key! This is great news as I wasn't even expecting it to crank at all!

Now for the real question. I've been looking through my FSM and all over the internet including this forum, but haven't been able to figure it out. I am replacing my clutch master cylinder so that I can actually take her for a short ride. However, I can't seem to find out what kind of fluid I am supposed to put into the CLUTCH master cylinder. The people at Autozone and a few other places said dot 3 or 4 brake fluid, but that just sounds kinda weird. I wanted to double check before I did something I later regretted. The model is 1972 240z L24 straight six engine, if it makes a difference.

Please let it be noted that I HAVE DONE MY RESEARCH and just want to double check with yall.
Thanks!
