I've heard sealer on the gasket & I've heard no sealer?
I have Yamabond 4

The key on the cam looks good but can't see the crank key.
Turn the crank clockwise with a bolt in the nose of it. When you pull the crank sprocket make sure there isn't an offset key like plaka was saying, but I'm guessing this is just a case of fucking up and being off one tooth. An offset key will put it off a few degrees which won't be so obvious when looking at the timing marks. A whole tooth out is too much to be an offset key. It is weird that someone wanted to make their own timing marks though.
