Problem converting ePub to Mobi

I'm currently editing my novel and would like to read it on my Kindle. I used Pages to export the novel as an ePub file and imported it into Calibre for the transfer to Mobi. After the transfer I used the viewer to preview the Mobi file and noticed the text wrapping was way off. I had to scroll to the right to keep reading. There are also no paragraph indents. I checked out the ePub file and it looks okay, except the paragraph indents are a little small (I used a single tab space in Pages).

I don't know if the ePub file is messed up or if there are setting within Calibre I need to adjust before converting. I don't know much about creating an eBook, so it's possible there's more steps I have to take go get my novel ready for the conversion. I've used Calibre to convert Kindle books I purchased to Amazon to ePub without any issues.

Any help is appreciated.
