Default 1991 D21 not starting

so i have a 1991 Nissan D21 it has a 93 motor in it though. so i took it out to go to the store and got back then later decided to out again my truck would not start. so when i put the key in the lights and everything work but the actual car will not turn over or even attempt to turn over. i can hear the ignition switches clicking but nothing, i don't think it could be the starter cause its never had a problem and wouldnt it show signs of giving out? I tried to jump the battery still nothing i have no idea what it could be!!!!!!!!!!! please help thanks!

First, check all the connections on the starter. especially the one from the starter to the battery. Make sure it isn't loose or corroded. Then you can check the circuit with this wiring diagram.

Here are 34 things to check.
Blue relay by battery on inside fender wall
Switch attached to clutch pedal
ignition switch(under column)
fusible links attached to battery

Im having the same problem I have a 86 nissan HB Z24 I just bought it about two weeks ago and it was working fine starting and restarting everytime,but last week a little shithead in a toyota scion barely hit my bumper and decides to try and ditch me well i chased him and hit a corner real fast in my hb then my truck stalled ,,it was dark and could not view my engine so i parked the truck and popped the hood the next morning,turns out my distributor fell out!!! WTF?i know P.O.S. turns out the guy i bought this from did not bolt in the dis. so i put it back in the right way cause it only goes one way with that flat key bolt on the end .then i started and drove it home ,,so the next day i went to go start it again and it started but made this horrific grinding noise,so i popped the hood again looked at the starter and it was loose and some silver metal flakes were down by the nut looked like the gear on starter was grinding on flywheel,I tightened it and tested it and it worked for another day or two but now it just clicks like the starter isnt even turning?any tips?
