    What supplies are need to make a gate assist?
    I already have the springs.

    I just need to know what size/type of pulleys and what size cable to get, and any other items I've missed.

    3/8" cable or larger. 4" pulley or larger.
    Pipe 1/4-1/2" larger than spring
    1/2" bolt or larger to secure spring of course nut and washer
    caribener to attach cable to gate and uring to weld to gate.
    pretty simple.
