help with correct formatting

I have a PDF that I converted into an EPUB using Calibre and I cant get the formatting how I want it. I want to add a page break between chapters. Here's my calibre log:

Code:
Merging user specified metadata...
Detecting structure...
Auto generated TOC with 17 entries.
Flattening CSS and remapping font sizes...
Source base font size is 12.00000pt
Cleaning up manifest...
Trimming unused files from manifest...
Creating EPUB Output...
Rescaling image from 1200x1554 to 749x971 cover.jpeg
Splitting markup on page breaks and flow limits, if any...
Splitting on page-break

Looking for large trees in index.html...
No large trees found
Split into 16 parts
EPUB output written to C:\Users\Mario\AppData\Local\Temp\calibre_0.9.13_tmp_phokn9\y9wqlj.epub
Here's an example of my problem:



And here's what I want it to look like:



Thanks for the help in advance

Since the chapters don't have the keyword "Chapter", splitting is barely iffiy at best.

15 minutes with Sigil, can help do the basic clean up: Break apart and Merge (fragments) .

Other cleaning does take more effort.
