Was the Ford 352ci V8 considered a small block or a big block?

Big Block as it shares the same block as the 390, 406, 410, 427 etc.

Wasn't the 410 a Mercury engine or a Ford engine, wasn't the 428 based on the same block as the 352, 390, 406, 410 and 427?

It is considered a medium block that started with the Edsel and was eventually up to the 428. Small bock up to 400. Big block went to 460.

Adding to this older thread, Ford dosen't use small or big block that's a GM term, Ford uses series which the 352 is refered to as the fe series and the 370/429/460 is called 385 series or lima. And yes there is a Mercury 410 fe which is a 390 with a 428s crankshaft.

There was also a 406 with triple carbs (3x2 bbl). Rated at 405 hp, I believe.

That is a different engine series than the FE engines. The 351 Clevelands were the best 350ish type c.i.d. engines ever built by the car companies to modify for racing. What I should say is it had the best cylinder head design of all of the 350ish sized engines to date. Here is a head that I worked on that is semi basedoff the Ford nascar/former Cleveland head design. (and yes, that is a Pontiac engine in a 73 T/A);
