Parasitic Draw/washer pump

Have been working a 0.57 amp draw with power off on my '67 for a bit and found that when I unplug the washer pump (the two wire connector at the pump), I drop down to 0.22 amp draw (I still have issues, but that was the big one). With it unplugged, the wipers still work, just no washers. Is there a way to repair something like this, or do I need to drop $40+ on a new pump?
