I have an edelbrock 600 carb. I have cleaned the outside with carb cleaner but it still doesn't look clean and it's kinda dull. Is there something that I could use to improve the appearance. It is not chrome

Try using brake cleaner on the outside (do not use it on the inside of the carb as it might dry the seals/gaskets out to much). Carb cleaner will leave an oil type residue that will make the surface still look dull. Brake cleaner does not leave an oil residue and will cut through the old fuel stains on the out side.. I would spray some on a shop towel and rub it on the areas that you are concerned about the look and see if that helps. You may still need to use a little elbow grease and some Mother's aluminum polish to get a nice luster but the brake cleaner will at least get the grease color down to a minimum.
