Non-filter engines only have the 14 screws around the perimeter. Leave the drain plug in and tightened. Use a prybar with the tip against the bellhousing and lever down on the drain plug. Sump should pop right off.

Yup... thank you! Was able to get it off without too much trouble. Just didn't want to do any prying without making sure I got all the screws, lol.
