55 ford 292 oil filter change over to spin-on

need some help i took the oil filter off a 292 ford thunderbird engine and found a plate and under that is a oil filter diaphragm plate.
my question is do i need this diaphragm from what i can see in the parts book it is used for a canister type filter and the engine had a conversion kit on it along with the diaphragm. the kit i see in the parts book did not have this diaphragm.
can some one help me out?
thank you
rick

I would play it safe and order a new kit because the gasket behind the plate is no longer serviced I believe.

It has finally dawned on me what you are describing (I am up in years). The origional diaphram plate should have been removed when the adaptor kit was installed. See thumbnails below;
