Glad to see this thread as I also found the handbook photos useless. My driveway is on an incline though. Would it be safe to jack the car up or use axle stands if the wheels that are still on the ground are chocked to stop it rolling or is it just a case of "don't do it"?

Not safe. Always try to jack on a level area as possible.

These are quite a good set of pictures from Gomog of the front and rear jacking points that I use.

Jack points



The lift jacking points as shown in the Gomog link are the only ones I use. There are multiple sources of support at the point of lift other than just the chassis whilst also benefiting from gusseting or additional strengthening. I also use wood to spread load from the jack pad.

I use a trolley jack. Center of rear crossmember in back and center of lower crosshead tube in front. I do not use a piece of wood. I just let the jack scratch the bottom of crossmember and tube. IMO not worth the trouble. However I temporary I put the jack stands under the ends of the chassis in the rear and the ends of the tubes in front. If more than a few minutes I put the jack stands under the rear axle at the end near the wheels to prevent "kick up". If I had a new or very nice Morgan I would use the wood. I envy those that have a hoist or use of one. Way to go!

Some differences of opinion but the plank option seems to be quite popular. Many thanks for the contributions - I just didn't want to cock it up and end up with an expensive bill. I shall put my 'O' level woodwork to the test and craft something similar to Craig cheers

I don’t use the timber blocks to protect the cross member from being scratched, I use them to spread the load, and avoiding the jack from slipping off ! That’s why my blocks have the V shape where the cross member locates, with the under side of the block routered out the same diameter of the jacks lifting point
