98' Mustang GT POWER DRAIN! HELP!!!!!

98 mustang gt , PI motor swap (believe its an 02 engine)

ok this has been a headache for the past months! started off with my alternator going bad awhile back, put Autozone alternator in, new battery, and was like new for about a month, then started hearing weird howling noises (sounded like bad bearing), replaced alternator again , howling stopped, then came back, couple weeks later went to get in my car and battery was completly dead, nothing, charged battery, drove car about 25 miles and it sat for 5-6 hrs. battery was dead..wtf!? well it comes down to me chasing fuses and it came down to the #14 fuel pump fuel which is actually mislabeled for the alternator fuse?? GOOD JOB FORD!!
but when i pull the fuse the drain stopes and battery does not die!
chased wires, everything looked good to me, no bare wires, no corrosion. etc... do i have a short somewhere? junk Autozone alternator? HELP!?!

Take the alt off the car and have it checked. Could have a bad diode.
