8RT is the designation for truck heads 48-53

6049 means it's a right hand head
6050 means it's a left hand head

The 'B' is for any mid series modifications.

They have an assortment of otherwise insignificant cast numbers and letters. Your 35B may have been a replacement head?? Doesn't fit the normal pattern, but then, most don't.
