I'm sorry, I don't see what you're doing here.
The more I think on it, a better solution would be use 2 cylinders and a 90 degree torus in a separate body, then cut that body from the first one. It's more complicated, but I think the result is a better model. This would more closely mimic the real world solution of an elbow and 2 sections of pipe. In this video I used additive cylinders and an additive torus, then did the cut. I was going to use subtractive features in order to avoid the extra boolean, but I got a message saying you can't added subtractive features to the empty body, so I decided to go this route instead. The video is a bit longer than I would have liked, but I had to fiddle around getting the placements and rotations like I wanted. I'm not that familiar with this procedure, so it was a learning process for me, too.
Edit: Thinking more on it, maybe a more streamlined approach would have been to place the torus first, then pad those faces out.
