I purchased the Hitachi Starter relay conversion from California cycle works.
Of corse it didn't come with instructions, but the plug on the Duc harness has to be converted to fit the new relay plug. The old plug has a small diode that jumpers between the leads at the old plug.

My questions are: Do I need the diode? Why would it be there in the first place?
It doesn't as much as mention it in any information about the conversion.
Thanks.

Not sure about Chris' conversion bits, but that diode is important to the OEM set up. It is passive until needed to prevent system damage. I would keep it in place (oriented as OEM).
