Do you mean short block and a long block? Or small block and big block?

Short Block - Block, crank, conrods, pistons, rings, bearings etc all assembled. Basically the bottom half.
Long Block - A Short Block plus heads, cam, push rods rockers etc all assembled. Basically the whole motor, minus bolt ons.
Small Block - Refers to the engine displacement, smaller displacement - 304/308ci, 307ci, 327ci, 350ci, etc,
Big Block - Large displacement engines - 454ci, 522ci, 572ci etc... All different sizes, different makes...
Thats a rough idea, want more details google each one..
