    long blocks include the head, pistons oil pan, the only thing not on there is basiaclly a tranny, short block is just the literal block. som people define them a little diff but i think thats basically it.

    Almost, but not quite.

    Short block is the bottom end of an engine. Block, crank, pistons, rods, and bearings.

    Long block is basically a short block with a head on it. No intake manifold, exhaust manifold, distributor.

    That's how it's been defined in the car scene I've been in for a while now.
