There were a few different versions of the Gard'n Master garden tractors built. They built a version that sat a bit lower to the ground, and they built a "taller" version. Here is a picture of my "taller" version Gard'n Master. It uses a Wisconsin engine and I believe a Dodge truck three speed transmission. The rear end I believe is a narrowed Dodge truck rear end, with final drives added to it.

Thanks to you guys for the input. Here is a picture of the rear end.It has brake drums but no brakes.Would anyone have a schematic of these or a guess as to where one might find these parts?Also the king pin/spindle assembly has been altered to get the tractor higher so this may very well be the smaller/lower model you suggest. Thanks to all Jim

That is a Gard'n Mast'r made by the Garden All company in Liberty, IN. I have a model JR which is similar to yours. The serial number tag was probably located on the left frame rail just below the tie rod. The missing brake pedals and hardware can be easily reproduced. The ones from the factory looked like they were home made anyway.
