1989 Merkur Xr4Ti Alternator

If my alternator is causing battery drain, should I simply replace the alternator or replace the alternator diode? What should be the reasonable cost of replacement either of the diode or the alternator?

Loss of front and rear turn Signals

Where should I troubleshoot to resolve a complete front and rear turn signal loss? All my fuses are ok. For any part replacement, where could I hope to locate a quality part to solve the problem? I have a 1989 Merkur XR4Ti.
