Balls! Sorted the cartridge oil change for my RS Judy forks... now find that the new 28mm TF Tuned seals won't fit. ID of forks is 34mm, OD of seal is 36mm.

Yep they changed the seals in 1997 which then stayed the standard size.

Been advised to look for SKF seals but does anyone know the correct ones to order?

The skf seal will be an standard double lip oil seal, sat inside. It'll probably be a much better seal, but with increased friction/stiction as it'll not have oil to help lube it (just the grease you supply).

The 95/96 which I have also, are just dust wiper seals really.
I think you can use both.

You need 28mm ID, iirc 35mm OD and about 5mm thick.
Thias may be able to help.
