First create in assembly mode a layout of V-belt route to maintain a proper length of belt.
In assy mode insert a part, create reference plane and on that plane transfer a sketch of V.belt route. Now you can do rest in assy mode but you can open a part separately and insert a belt profile, and sweep it thru V-belt route.

When you change a distance between pulleys you do it in assy mode in Layout sketch, you also can change a diameter of puley.
