    shortblock = block, crank, rods, pistons

    Longblock = shortblock + heads, cams, intake

    A longblock includes the shortblock.

    A shortblock is usually the pistons, rods, and crank. The heads, valves, camshafts, etc. aren't included, where they would be as part of the LB, along with everything from the SB.

    You can't have everything - where would you put it?
