Advanced timing chain

Hey Thomas,
I bought this about 3 months ago so I don't know all the history, the odometer is at 121,320, the chain and guides look new, I found the c clip linkage so it was replaced, my question is will this being advanced cause any engine problems and how would I go correcting the advancement, the car runs excellent now but I do hear what sounds to me like a very slight valve tap on the right side. The compression is between 125-128 on all cylinders.

Thanks Again,
