Click G to grab or translate the face, which you've selected and type the certain distance you want the face to go. You can use the X, Y and Z keys to lock the movement to a certain axis.enter image description here

Is it possible to move parts of a model along the selected normals?

TL;dr: You may also move the faces along the normals. To do this just change the Transform Orientation.

Doing so aligns the Z axis with the Normals of the selected faces. After pressing G for Grab Press zz to move along the normals (Pressing once moves them along the Global Z-Axis) EDIT: Formatting
