an HDX-555 from a ham's  widow and have had a  problem with the time delay
relays that control the motor drive. I wish to  replace the two plug-in
relays in the control box and have substitutes on  hand but am not certain
what the settings should be. The range is .1 to 10  seconds. Does anyone 
what settings I should select and if so, should  they be the same in both
relays or different from the left to the right one  as I face the box?

    I don't know what the factory settings are -  probably a bunch of delay 
to keep "amateur" owners out of trouble. Set them  anywhere you want; I'd 
suggest a long delay and then turning it down until you  have a delay you can 
live with. It's really a safety feature to keep fingers,  etc. out of 
harm's way when you hit the switch.
