Anaerobic only cures in small spaces when exposed to metal and not air, don't know what happened but if you had any gap to seal anaerobic probably wont work. Beyond 0.015-0.02" it wont ever cure depending on who you trust. It's worth reading up on what it's used for and why, at least I thought it was. Hopefully it works this time.The Permatex anaerobic gasket maker never set up except where exposed to the air. It appears to have washed out where the bearing cap meets the block.
