[Healeys] What Jack?

The issue, as I've understood(?) it, is often that one can't get a jack
underneath with a flat tyre and with the car in an unlucky position. Hence,
I gather, some people carry a small scissors to lift the first few inches.

Isn't clearance on a 100 even worse than on a 3000?

I've carried one for ages in my 3000. Never had to use! Saying that is
probably fatal!

Went to Canadian Tire in mtl and bought a small screw jack. Fits under the
frame and stores well

As I continue with the restoration of my BN2 there are some considerations I
need to address.  This is not a 100% concours restoration.  I am
compromising in a few areas for better functionality and use of the car.
For example, my voltage regulator is converted to positive ground solid
state.  In the case of carrying tools, I am not seeking a concours tool kit,
to include an original jack.  For those of you that feel the same way, I was
wondering what a good modern aftermarket jack would be a good choice.  What
jack do you carry with the car?
