They have many differences, thats why you have to fill out a spec sheet when you order them.

For sure you will have to look them up in a parts book. I haven't worked on a stock braking system for them since the sixties. Torn plenty of them off and converted to disc etc. The cylinders look the same externally but may have different bores.

Most 50 Chevys had the GM Huck brakes altho some of the last 50's came with Bendix which Chevy went to in 1951. If your adjustment slot is on the bottom, you lucked out. You have the Bendix brakes and the 52's will fit. If the slot is on the top you have the old style Huck and will have to order them from someone like Kanter.
