I put the lift points on the frame rails, spaced for the correct balance.

Peter,

I agree with Doug, but I also use a piece of soft plywood on the jack between the jack and the rail. The frame rails are soft and can be easily dented by steel to steel contact. Most Healeys I've seen (including mine) have dents on the bottom of the frame rails from being jacked up over the years.
