Those are engine terms for when you buy a new or reman engine. Short block is an engine block assembled with the crank, rods, and pistons I think. A long block is an engine assembled from the oil pan to the heads. A short block you re use the heads off the old engine and a long block comes with the heads already on and all you need to do is install the accesories on the front of the engine like the water pump, A/C pump, ect...

Big block and small block are gas engine terms. If you want to get technical a small block is typically less than 360 cubic inches and a big block is larger than 360 cubic inches. a 7.3 liter is 445 cubic inches so by definition it would be a big blcok
