Layland 272 in fairly good condition 25 yrs old. Has a problem of Intermittently losing its drive function. Can be like this for some time and then out of the blue randomly works again. Have topped up with transmission oil to no avail. At a dead loss to know wat the problem is.

Is this a 9 speed synchro or 10 speed?
Do you engage a gear and let up the clutch and it doesn't go?
Has it got hydraulically operated clutch and brakes?
Any unusual noises?
When it is going is it seemingly all ok?

Think its a nine speed. yes, engage gear and let out clutch and it doesn't go, however sometimes it does go. No hydraulically clutch and brakes, no apparent noises, and seems to run fine when going,

There is something inconsistent in what you have told us. It would help if you could post some photos, from the drivers seat showing the dashboard and the pedals and maybe external views. There were significant changes made at the time of the 272 and any advice would depend on the exact spec. of your machine.

I'll take a stab (in the dark).

If a gear is selected it goes.

If it doesn't go , then no gear is selected.

Take it from there?
