Discover the differences between long block and short block

Become an expert and master the characteristics and differences of the different engine blocks.

If you work in the sector, or you are passionate about mechanics, you have surely heard about the long block and short block. These have a relevant role in all vehicles and, although you may know them in broad strokes, you may still have some doubts about their differences and characteristics.

But… don’t worry! The #TeamMonedero explains in this post the main differences so that you have it clear. We are experts in components for heavy and light commercial vehicles, special vehicles and buses. In this section, we will tell you everything you need to know, keep reading!

What they are, differences and characteristics

The engine block is a cast iron or aluminum structure in which all the parts of an engine are located. Thus, when you order a block (also known as a naked block) in the workshop, you should know that you are only getting the structure and, on it, you will have to assemble the rest of the elements to complete the engine.

However, when we talk about short and long blocks, the main difference lies in the number of parts included in each of them. Do you want to know more? Don’t miss the following sections!

Short block

The short block or short block engine is the lower part of the engine. It includes the cylinder block, where the combustion chambers are located, and has different individual parts such as the crankshaft, the camshaft, the engine equipment (piston + cylinder liners), the bushings, the cooler and the oil pump.

Among the advantages of a short block we can highlight that its initial price is cheaper and that it allows greater customization. However, among its disadvantages, we can highlight that it requires a longer installation time, since the different components must be checked and assembled by the customer.

Below, you can see a picture of one of the most sold short blocks: the Mercedes Benz OM651 short block with reference 10010300061, which you can find in our b2b web platform.

Long block

The long block engine includes both the short block, which is the lower part of the engine, and the upper part.

Thus, the long block will include components such as the cylinder head and sometimes camshaft plus rocker arms. Even so, it should be noted that the engine would not be complete, because it would still have to add some components such as the fuel system and the intake and exhaust manifolds, among others.

Among the advantages of a long block we can highlight that the parts included are already adjusted, which also saves time. However, it has some disadvantages such as, the initial price is higher and you can not customize it, which may lead many to prefer the short block.

Below is a picture of one of the best-selling long blocks: the MAN D2676 long block with reference number 20010400018, which you can find on our b2b web platform.

In addition, you will take into account the time you have available, as well as your budget.

Crankshaft OM471LA Mercedes Benz application

Monedero launched the crankshaft in 2021 and since then it has become one of the brand’s TOP products.

Crankshaft OM471LA

In 2021, Monedero launched a first version of the OM471LA crankshaft, a product in high demand in the aftermarket. Until then, no aftermarket company could offer an alternative to the original references, which was really up to customers’ requirements.

Monedero, through reverse engineering processes, uses exhaustive analysis to ensure the highest quality and efficiency of its products. The objective is to provide its customers with new launches and exclusive references with the quality of the original parts, but at a very competitive price.

For these reasons, and through collaboration with OEM manufacturers, the best alternative to the original Mercedes crankshaft was launched on the market. The launch was a complete success, becoming today one of the TOP products of the Monedero brand; being one of the most sold references in the year 2022.

Equivalent references

The reference OM471LA crankshaft coin box is 10011000051. This is equivalent to the original Mercedes Benz references: A4710300101, A47110300201 and A4710300401.

The engine types in which the crankshaft can be applied are: 471900, 471902, 471906, 471909, 471919, 471922, 471926, 471937, 471944, 471945, 471946, 471951 and 471961.

Finally, it should be noted that the OM471LA crankshaft for Mercedes Benz application can be mounted on the following vehicles: Actros MP4/5, Arocs and Antos… Want to know more about them? Here’s why they are so special!

Mercedes Benz Actros truck

The OM471LA crankshaft for Mercedes Benz application is compatible with Actros MP4/5 trucks, the latest versions of the classic Astro heavy truck series.

The first model was launched in 1996, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of Daimler’s first truck. Its success has been such that, over the years, the model has endured and new versions of it have been launched, in line with new market needs.

Over the past 27 years, the truck series has won numerous awards, with each generation of Actros being named International Truck of the Year. In this way, it has become the truck series that has received this distinction the most.

Today, the five generations of Actros are an example in the truck industry, because they have set a benchmark in the development of electronic, efficient and modern trucks.

The OM471LA crankshaft can be mounted on the MP4 and MP5 series, which represented a radical change with respect to the previous series. These trucks incorporated more innovative designs, which established the basis for the design of these trucks. They inspired the entire truck program of the brand during the following years.
