Long block means block with rotating assembly (crank, rods, pistons), cam, lifters, timing set, heads, pushrods and rocker arms.

Re: engine term

Long block refers to a short block (block,crank,rods,pistons) with timing components and cylinder heads installed. Big block is a larger type engine versus the small block.
