My suggestion is DON'T!
It's a body dinger and paint remover, not to mention just plain dangerous.
The car has to be pretty well balanced on the jack point to raise both
wheels off the ground. Perhpas there's something going on with your car's
fore and aft weight distribution?
I had it slip off that jack once years ago and never used it again. I bought
a Sears screw type scissors jack that I have in the trunk now. It's very
compact, I can place it anywhere under the car and it's a lot more stable
than that horrible OEM contraption.

Subject: How to use the stock jack?
I don't have a copy of the owner's manual, so can someone explain
how to use the standard jack that comes with the datsun roadster?
There are the two jack points towards the front of the car near
the door hings, so I put the jack into one of those, stood it on the
spare wheel tie down disc and turned the crank handle. Just the
front wheel came off the ground. I couldn't see any way to use this
jack to raise the rear wheels.
I know the stock jack isn't the safest one to use, but for emergency
wheel changes, it does fit in the trunk nicely.
