I often just changed the motherboard from a 48K to a defect Spectrum+

IIRC the Spectrum+ was also sold as an upgrade kit. So you could have any issue board that was current at the time inside. Which is probably common.
Summarized: ZX Spectrum 16 or 48K, better keyboard + reset button.

The 'plus' also had little fold away feet so you could angle the machine if you so desired (well I think it did anyway)

The biggest difference is, that rubber Spectrum has a much better keyboard.
I always thought that the Spectrum+ keyboard is utter rubbish ..

Just in case you're all in suspense, I fixed the machine...
