Default quick Ceriani question

Searched around everywhere couldn't find specs on oil type and quantity for Certain 35mm front ends. I had run SAE 20 but it all leaked out. Checked my seals and they look super solid. Maybe too thin of oil? Direct me to some info ye wizards of motorbikes.

I always use ATF as fork oil,

the reason I like it in older forks is because it has an anti-foaming agent and is 20wt oil.

your fork oil may be getting all foamed up and pushed out.
