Looks like the seal is only available from Alfa as part of the casing that bolts onto the crankcase - part number 71718365 - but before you change it check why the leak is occuring - just make sure that you haven't got excessive crank end-float - you'll need to get someone to sit in the car with the engine running and the car in neutral, then put it into 1st or reverse (with foot on the brake, of course) while you watch the crank pulley to see if there is any movement as the clutch is activated - because the clutch puts pressure on the flywheel and therefore the crank, and if the thrust washers are worn the crank can move, which pushes the crank seal out at the crank pulley end.....I've had a seal fail repeatedly because of this......
