If you see slack on cable from handle to "Y" where it runs to both rear wheels, then you'll need to get cables at rear wheels loosened up. Do you use hand brake much, and what have you tried so far?

1987. Right front brake disc is stuck on the sheath around the spindle. How do I break it loose?

If you mean that the rotor is stuck on the hub, it is most likely rust or corrosion, some makers use screws on them. Use a dead blow hammer or rubber mallet on it. Don't use a metal hammer.

How do u disconnect the emergency brake on a 1987 dodge dakota 4x4

It depends on where the cable is stuck.
You can disconnect it at the connection points, you have a front, center, and two rear cables. But if the cable is stuck at one of the brake drums, disconnecting it at the front or center connector won't free up the brake shoes.

Wont start trying to locate the fuel pump jag. xj6

Most cars have the fuel pump on the drivers side right in front of the rear wheel tucked up into the body panel. You can easily find them by tracing the thin fuel line from the tank until you get to the fuel pump. Hope this helps!

If handle is down, look for slack in cable under car, and if it's got slack in it, then you'll have to get cables at rear wheels loosened up, going into backing plate.

My 1989 Plymouth Horizon when I am stopped and holding my foot on the brake pedal I get a low hissing sound from somewhere in the car. I have checked all brake lines ad they are fine as well as master...

That hissing sound you hear is the brake booster, that big black round shaped thing that the brake master cylinder is bolted to, the diaphram inside, probably has a hole in it. Have to replace whole thing, not just the diaphram.
