deal, dealt

But, please note, even though the vowel looks the same (i.e. deal, dealt), the vowel sound changes:

Present, deal (d[i:]l) => Past, dealt (d[E]lt)

Symbols
i: as in "ee" in see.
E as in "e" in bed.

If those are the forms you are looking for, try,

sleep, slept
dream, dreamt
keep, kept

Look for past tense verbs that end in "t". :D
