Davis Manufacturing ( Case ) Trencher

I just bought an IH656 tractor and was given a Davis Manufacturing Walk Behind Trencher that was either made for or licensed by the J Case Company. The data tag on the trencher has a location to stamp the model number there but nothing was stamped. The Serial Number is 1111656.
The engine I was told is a Wisconsin but I cant tell from the data tag. There is a series of letters on the data tag that I can make out and then there is a number next to it that says 393810 and another number next to it that is

5621010. I have no idea what those numbers are supposed to correspond to since the paint on the data tag is worn off.

Anyone have any information on this trencher?

thanks for your information! I stopped by my local Case dealer and he was able to print up a Parts Manual for me. I still need to find the information on the AENLD spec. 393810 Wisconsin engine. I found some information but I need to get a Service Manual for it. The rest of the trencher (save for some rust) appears to be in very good condition. In fact, the engine might just need a new fuel tank, muffler and carb rebuild along with a tune up.

Davis was (is) in Wichita Ks and the leftovers of the company still manufacture Case skid steers here. You *might* be able to get some info from Case New Holland since the local factory is a direct legacy of the old Davis.

Found this on the net:

Wichita Eagle Sunday, February 4, 1979 page 4B.
Feature article about Charles J. Davis, 64, and the Davis Manufacturing Company. Last month the company introduced a new line, including a forklift, a loader-backhoe, and a multi purpose street repair machine.
In 1950 Davis bought Mid-Western Industries, a small subcontractor for the aircraft industry, and introduced his own line of tractor mounted loaders and backhoes. Within eight years they became an industry standard and he sold the company to Massey-Ferguson Ltd. of Canada. By 1959 Davis was back in Wichita and established Davis Manufacturing Company to improve the design of trenching machines. In 1969 he sold the company to Tennecco, Inc. Davis Manufacturing continues making trenchers in Wichita as a division of J. I. Case Company.

Tuesday, January 8, 1980 page 5B.
Wichita’s Davis Manufacturing Company, which was bought out by the J. I. Case Company 12 years ago changed its name effective yesterday to the J. I. Case Light Equipment Division. It employs about 800 people in Wichita, mainly at a 24,000 square foot plant at Hoover and 31st Street South.
