I've got a 92 model that had the same issues. I ended up going to a parts store and looking through their selection of replacement cable ends until I found one that would work. It doesn't look like the original but works just fine. Option #2 would be to get a new cable from Nissan.

I have 1994 nissan pickup.

Will it eventually start after it cools down for an hour or so? Make sure your battery connections are clean and not corroded. This is a common problem when people don't maintain their cars. Battery acid builds up arround the terminals an can limit the amount of current to pass through the battery cables when hot or sometimes cold.Use bakeing soda and water and pour it on the corroded areas. Get a small wire brush and try to clean the terminals. Ideally you want to ddisconnect the terminals from the battery (NEGATIVE CABLE FIRST!) You can buy a battery terminal cleaner real cheap at an auto parts house which will do a good job cleaning the battery terminals and the inside if the cable connection. Nissan typically connects their positive cable to the battery positive battery cable end. They usually use a 12mm or a 10 mm on their connections for their terminals. You can buy after market positive battery terminal ends with the nut to secure the battery cable. ( would suggest replacing it if threre is a lot of corrosion) You can have a heat soak problem with the starter where when the starter gets hot from the engine heat it will not work. Your description "Will not crank after driving 40 miles or so, , when you use the term "crank,suggests to me that when you turn the key, the starter will not spin the motor" There is also a starter relay.which could be bad. This is only available from your Nissan dealer. If you mean When you turn the key, the starter spins the motor but the engine does not start, I need more details on the vehicle, Is it a 4 or V-6?
How long does it have to sit before it will start, assuming there is nothing wrong with the starter? Are there any yellow lights coming on which would would indicate a problem? You can get the truck scanned at Auto Zone for Free. Their scan is just basic and does not go anywhere into the depth that a scanner like the $14,500 scanner I have does. BUT I CHARGE FOR SCANNING. A way you could best have your truck diagnosed for probably a low cost, would be to go to a shop who works on these vehicles every day. Tell them what is going on (this is after you have eliminated the obvious). You can in many cases arrange with the shop on an appointment where you can arrive at the time you have driven about 50-60 miles and have it arranged to where , when you show up, they immediately take your truck in and look at it during the time it is malfincting. Odds are they can spot the problem quickly and your diagnostic charge would be low because there is time to find out if it is electrical, fuel or what ever. If the problem does not show up as you have described and the condition can not be reproduced even after you have driven it, the shop will still have to charge you a minimum for taking it in even if it didn't act up.Think about it I can give you tons of possibilities, but can't do it without input..

It looks as if you have a dead short in the alternator. Check that the insulators around the terminal are not broken or that the fibre washer under the nut that holds the terminal in place (the nut under the lead that allows you to tighten the outside nut up on) is not allowing the wire to touch the alternator housing If that is all ok maybe you need a replacement alternator

remove the air cleaner and air duct assembly then remove the radiator hose then the water inlet housing remove the thermostat from the housing make sure you disconnect the battery ground and drain the engine and radiator coolant.

I owned one and i regret having to have sold it. I do not know of any ongoing problems with this vehicle. check around your clutch pedal for wires that may be rubbing against it and are grounding out or cut? you can find schematic in manual at parts store and i recommend buying one for your own good. They are a wealth of information about your vehicle.

Are you sure that the battery is still viable? What you describe can also be caused by a battery's  'cold starting' amps falling.
Also, before you replace the starter, go over each battery contact; the two posts which may not be contacting well, the point at which the negative ground is attached to the body or engine, and the starter terminal. Any auto parts store will have a battery terminal cleaning brush; these have a male part for the inside of the clamps and a female brush for the battery posts.
If the solenoid (that's what is doing the clicking) is separate from the starter, use a wire brush to clean any terminals in the path from + terminal of the battery to the starter.
Starters draw ~ 120 to 200 amps when starting and any corrosion or loose terminals can cause the effect you have.
Removing the starter is not difficult; they are held only by 2 or 3 bolts to the bell housing of the transmission. BUT; before you deal with anything electrical on a car, disconnect the negative battery terminal first - always.  If a tool slips while removing the negative/ground post clamp, hitting some other part grounded to the chassis - no fire. If you remove the + terminal first, slipping can blow the tool away and severely damage the post.
Starters do fail but it is often the result of an oil leak that has worked its way into the starter and contaminated the commutator so the brushes no longer fully contact.
