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?

sets the timing.
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.
