Post Big Block/Small Block - Ford

Ok, I'm getting confused here. Someone just told me a 351C is a small block, but the 351M/400 is a big block. They're all in the same family though, right?

Now I know about the 351M/400 sharing the same tranny bolt pattern as the 429/460, cause of my Bronco and the 429 swap I'm doing.

I was always told that the 352/360/390FE and the 385 series (429/460) were the Ford big blocks. Now I learn that the big block/small block differention is only in the tranny case bolt pattern?

So, is there no difference (the block itself) in big block/small block...other than the obvious difference in cubic inches and the tranny bolt pattern?
