Engine Long Block
A long block is an engine that is almost completely assembled with all of its major components. The term long block has nothing to do with the engines physical dimensions but is instead the industry term given to describe the state of completion of an assembly. This type of engine is popular with people who have repairs on their old engine that cost more than buying a new long block engine. A long block engine will save time and money and does not take much knowledge of every component in the engine since they are already installed.
Some of the parts included in a long block are the cylinder head, short block, gasket head, valves, springs, seats, guides, camshafts, and timing gears. These are all the expensive and hard to install components that most people with average knowledge on an engine would have a hard time installing. Long blocks can come in many different sizes which is why finding one that will fit the specific vehicle that it is being installed on is key. Engine mounts and other minor adjustments to the vehicles body may have to be made if the exact type engine cannot be replaced. Long block engines can be purchased in many locations but it is recommended to be purchased from a reputable manufacturer to ensure quality control and a well performing product.
