Those buggers are always going it was one of my first electronics
projects replacing it in my 48k speccy.  

I modded a ZX81 (long lost but an original one is around the house
somewhere) to have an external heatsink like the 128k spectrums which
solved loads of problems but meant I kept burning my arm :)
